Book Recommendations from Mr. Waldon, School Social Worker

Hello Families –

If you missed last night’s PTO meeting and Mr. Waldon’s outstanding talk about the development of middle school aged children, you have more opportunities! Mr. Waldon’s and Ms. Lubin’s incredible Parenting Partners Workshops begin Thursday, September 22 from 6-8 pm in the Skinner Library. These free workshops will benefit any parent or guardian of a middle schooler and we highly recommend that our parents/guardians attend!

Mr. Waldon also recommended the two books below as excellent resources for parents and guardians:

  • Middle School Makeover: Improving the Way You and Your Child Experience the Middle School Years by Michelle Icard
  • Not Much Just Chillin’: The Hidden Lives of Middle Schoolers by Linda Perlstein
